I found this picture as I was looking for images around Lent. It was part of a blog that reminded us to “Keep Love in Lent.” Growing up, the focus of Lent was always sacrifice, fasting, penitence and so on. While these areas of emphasis remain true and are truly meaningful when one plumbs their depths, I also appreciated this reminder about Love.
There was a beautiful quote I found while exploring the spirituality of Lent.
“Lent is a time when we deepen our faith in a journey not of grand gestures but of small surrenders” Emilie Griffin Small Surrenders: A Lenten Journey
It makes me think, how am I willing to surrender to love? This will be my thought as I journey deeper into the Lenten season.
